Taipei, Sept. 11 (CNA) Taiwan successfully concluded its most important war games, the annual Han Kuang series of military exercises, which this year simulated an attack by China, the Ministry of National Defense said Friday.
“The drills have achieved the goal of the training,” the ministry said of the exercises, which were staged on Taiwan proper and on its outlying islands from Monday to Friday.
Through simulating various scenarios of a Chinese attack, the drills “were aimed at testing the military’s combat capabilities and testing the effectiveness of military mobilization, in an effort to bolster the country’s overall combat capabilities,” it said.
As the second part of the Han Kuang military exercises, the five-days of maneuvers saw the Army, Navy and Air Force test their joint operations in the face of a simulated military threat from China. They followed computer-aided war games held in May. [FULL STORY]
